Most power doesn't always equate to "best." I suggest YOU do your own research, check up on old threads, read the manufactures respective web pages, if you are unfamiliar with the different types of superchargers read up on those (i.e. Twin Screw, Centrifugal), in addition to that it'd be wise to learn more about the different compressors that the different kits will use (i.e. Rotrex, ASA), are there certified/experienced shops in your area that are familiar with installing the kit you want, what kind of support can you expect from the SC maker, do they have any sort of "on-line" presence?

There are many factors to include in your decision besides simple power output, if you want to know what's best for you, then YOU'RE going to have to do the work. Posting a question like this only will lead to most people replying with what kit they have or whatever kit/vendor they think is "cool."

power isnt everything, if you dont have the other parts to be able to handle the addition of an s/c it may not be the best plan. You should build your car up to the s/c then depending on budget pick a s/c kit from there. If you're interested in a proven kit for a pretty damn good price, I'd contact Samir or Mike at technik, just let them know chris sent you and they'll take care of you as well as answering any questions you may have about a s/c kit. good luck!
